I live in Dover, PA. I have logged 57 species of birds from my property through 35 years. Yesterday a new bird landed 3' away from me while sitting on my deck. I at first thought it was a Carolina Wren which I have two around. In searching the web for warblers I came across two that look like it but for the head coloring. The Mourning Warbler and Connecticut Warbler look like the bird I saw but it had a brown head. The breast was a bright yellow and I think it had some dark brown around the eye. It was only there for maybe 10 seconds and I didn't have my camera. Hope to see it again when I have my camera.
Thanks for any help. Mike

Perhaps this post could be moved to the ID subforum? I'm sure someone there would be happy and ready to offer help.

How about a Juvenile Mourning or Connecticut Warbler, These can often have a brownish head.
